10 10 Programme Thursday, November 29 12:30-13:00 OPENING LECTURES Jerzy Buzek, Member of the European Parliament Mikolaj Budzanowski, Minister, Ministry of Treasury, 13:00-14:45 DISCUSSION PANEL Financing Large Energy Projects - Who s To Pay For It? Investments in new power units are necessary in order to maintain national energy security. Energy capacities to be achieved by 2020 are due to replace some of the old power units that must be switched off. Those new facilities should be powerful enough to meet the rising energy consumption. It is estimated that s energy sector will require investments worth PLN 170 billion in the next ten years. The current financial crisis limits the flow of foreign capital, which makes it difficult to precede with new projects. Thus, the question arises who is to pay for the large energy infrastructure projects? Moderator: Michal Lubieniecki, Executive Partner, ICENTIS, Presentation of the Report: Wojciech Hann, Partner, Deloitte, Lecture: Rafal Baniak, Undersecretary of State, Ministry of Treasury, Speakers: Dariusz Lubera, President of the Board, Tauron Polish Energy SA, Dariusz Daniluk, President of the Board, Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego, Lukasz Dziekonski, Member of the Board, Marguerite Fund, Beata Kielan, President of the Board, GO TFI S.A., Tomasz Wroblewski, Journalist, Discussant: Elina Luca-Ratfeldere, Head of Energy Markets, Infrastructure and Cooperation Coordination Division, Ministry of Economics, Latvia Presentation: Jarosław Wajer, Business Advisory Partner, Ernst & Young,
11 Programme 11 14:45-15:10 COFFEE BREAK 15:10-16:40 DISCUSSION PANEL Energy Policy vs. EU s Climate Policy Objectives Including climate policy objectives in the general energy strategy will contribute to the growth of innovation in the EU s energy sector and will increase the security of energy supplies. EU s fuel comes mostly from imports. Thus, seeking a path to independence from external suppliers seems to be a reasonable option. Many initiatives have been undertaken in order to enhance energy efficiency, strengthen the role of local energy resources, as well as to improve the energy transportation and distribution networks. The pace of these processes differs between EU member states. Hence, it is worth discussing how to alleviate these differences, how to use the energy produced by 27 states, and how to cooperate with external partners. Moderator: Gonzalo Escribano, Director, Energy Program, Elcano Royal Institute of International and Strategic Studies, Spain Speakers: Alexander Vasilenko, Member of Parliament, State Duma, Russia Dirk Buschle, Legal Counsel and Deputy Director, Energy Community, Austria Jan Szyszko, Member of Parliament, Jan Raczka, President of the Board, National Fund for Environment Protection and Water Management, Konrad Szymanski, Member of the European Parliament Presentation: Agaton Kozinski, Chief Editor, Energy Almanac 2012 Witold Laskowski, Advisor to the Board, Instytut Polskiej Energii 16:40-17:00 COFFEE BREAK

13 Programme 13 17:20-18:20 DISCUSSION PANEL Natural, Liquid, Shale Which Gas Will Become Europe s Fuel? Fulfilling the European consumers needs until renewable resources will be widely used, which implicates implementing balanced and coherent policy aiming to develop gas infrastructure. Experts claim that the upcoming decade will be the decade of gas. The significance of natural gas for the global economy is constantly growing. The capacity to extract natural gas from a country s own pools and to use it effectively is the measure of its economic security. Prices of natural gas in Europe are strictly related to oil prices. Most of gas contracts are long-term and set minimum amounts for importing gas regardless of the current situation on the market. Therefore, local exploration of shale gas on flexible terms of delivery is more and more appreciated. Europe needs energy security and shale gas is largely seen as an important factor of energy stability. Moderator: James Bartis, Senior Fellow, RAND Corporation, USA Presentation: Conditions for Gas Exploration from Polish Shale Formations Maria Ciechanowska, Director, Oil and Gas Institute, Speakers: Francisco P. de la Flor Garcia, President, Gas LNG Europe (GLE), & Director of Regulation, Enagás, Spain Thomas Kleefuss, Managing Director, NET4GAS, Czech Republic Agnieszka Lakoma, Polish Press Agency (PAP), Piotr Wozniak, Undersecretary of State, Chief National Geologist, Ministry of the Environment, Boguslaw Sonik, Member of the European Parliament, Discussant: Krzysztof Jan Kurzydlowski, Director, National Center for Research and Development, Luis Fraga, President, World Stability Observatory, Spain
14 14 Programme 17:20-18:20 DISCUSSION PANEL Energy: Politics vs. Business Europe is about to define its strategic approach towards energy sector. There s an urgent need for investment in this sector and their consequences will be crucial for future decades. On one hand, we need a longterm, common policy of all EU s member states, on the other hand, individual interests of the members should not be forgotten. It seems that rational interventionism and regulations are necessary for the energy sector to operate effectively. Energy, energy efficiency and renewables are widely discussed issues. Who, then, manages energy issues and who has real impact on these matters? Moderator: Jozef Oleksy, Programme Council of the Economic Forum, Lecture: Cezary Grabarczyk, Deputy Speaker, Parliament, Speakers: Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz, International Adviser, Goldman Sachs, Anca Jalba, Senior Analyst, Business Development, Statoil ASA, Norway Waldemar Lisiak, Director of Development Department, ZE PAK SA, Janusz Cisek, Undersecretary of State, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Discussant: Miroslav Zajicek, Chairman of the Department of Institutional Economics, University of Economics, Prague, Czech Republic 18:20-18:30 BREAK
15 Programme 15 18:30-19:45 DISCUSSION PANEL Low-Emission Buildings - New Model of the Economic Politics Low-emission buildings will play a leading role in the process of the transformation of the EU economy into a climate-friendly one. Modern technologies have already enabled construction of low-emission buildings. This allows to reduce dependence on traditional energy sources as well as provides the best quality at a competitive price. Private construction projects are granted subsidies for the construction or acquisition of energy-saving buildings from the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management. The panel will present actions aiming to achieve a competitive low-emission economy. Moderator: Janina Kopietz-Unger, Professor, Uniwersity of Zielona Gora, Speakers: Robert Dziwinski, General Inspector of Building Control, The General Office of Building Control, Janusz Zbik, Undersecretary of State, Ministry of Transport, Construction and Maritime Economy, Krzysztof Jan Kurzydlowski, Director, National Center for Research and Development, Marcin Piotrowski, Chairman, City Council of Marki, 20:00 RECEPTION Venue: Hotel Sheraton, Marco Polo Room
16 16 Programme Friday, November 30 9:30-11:00 DISCUSSION PANEL The Role of Renewable Energy Sources in the Energy Mix in the Ongoing and Upcoming Decades It seems inevitable that in the long term our energy needs will largely be met owing to renewable sources. How to design energy bridges that will conduct us safely to this point and what power structure centralized or distributed is preferable? What should be the energy mix in the perspective of 2050, and how to reach it? What should we bank on: Should the RES sector be imposed with stringent requirements and limitations in connection with the way the current transmission system works and balances supply and demand for energy? Or should it be transformed by increasing its ability to interface with the democratic micro- and pico-energetics? Moderator: Grzegorz Onichimowski, Vice President of the Board, IPE Trading, Lecture: Slawomir Nowak, Minister of Transport, Construction and Maritime Economy, Presentation of the Report: Tomasz Podgajniak, President of the Board, ENERCO, Speakers: Gerd Harms, Senior Advisor to the Board, Enertrag AG, Germany Bogdan Pilch, PGE Renewable Energy, Stephen Thomas, Professor of Energy Studies, University of Greenwich, United Kingdom Igor Mitroczuk, Director, Ministry of the Environment, 11:00-11:20 COFFEE BREAK
17 Programme 17 11:20-12:50 DISCUSSION PANEL Innovative Energy Benefits for Economy and Consumers Apart from searching new energy sources and improving technology, importance is increasingly attached to a better energy management that can reduce losses during transmission. Experts claim that implementing innovations requires new systemic solutions that would cover the whole supply chain from producers to consumers. What steps should be taken to implement new solutions? What legislation can encourage investors and consumers to implement them? Where to look for funding? What legislation can encourage investors and consumers to implement them? Moderator: Andrzej Czerwiński, Member of Parliament, Presentation of the Report: Home Area Networks Within Smart Grids Mariusz Przybylik, Director, A.T. Kearney, Lecture: Marek Woszczyk, President, Energy Regulatory Office, Speakers: Michal Ajchel, Vice-President Infrastructure Business, Schneider Electric Dante Bartolomei, Chairman of the Board, Asteria Srl, Italy David Dornbusch, President, CleanTuesday, France Sławomir Kopec, President, Malopolska Siec Szerokopasmowa,
18 18 Programme 11:20-12:50 DISCUSSION PANEL Privatization, Restructuring, Stock Exchange What Ownership Changes Do Have Impact on Security and Effectiveness of the Energy Sector? The economic crisis demands certain adjustments in some sectors of the economy. It has often been repeated that the state should be more active in the economy and strategically important companies. The main purpose of such an involvement would be to attract capital for innovation and investments and to avoid hostile takeovers. Will the government become more active in companies management boards? What will happen to privatisation programmes and private capital growth? Will these tendencies help stop the crisis from deepening and increase competitiveness? How are the investments in such sectors as energy and telecommunication going to be financed? Moderator: Igor Chalupec, Executive Partner, ICENTIS, Presentation of the Report: Pawel Tamborski, Undersecretary of State, Ministry of Treasury, Lecture: Maciej Swiecicki, Member of Parliament, Speakers: Jan Wyrowinski, Deputy Speaker, Senate of the Republic of David Kucera, Secretary General, Power Exchange Central Europe, Czech Republic Jan Bury, Chairman of the Parliamentary Club of the Polish People s Party, Parliament, Dariusz Mioduski, President of the Board, Kulczyk Investments SA, Jerzy Baehr, Co-managing Partner, Wiercinski, Kwiecinski, Baehr Sp. k., 12:50-13:10 COFFEE BREAK
19 Programme 19 13:10-13:25 13:10-13:25 LECTURE: 13:25-13:30 BREAK China s Energy Situation and Policy Qingzhe Jiang, Chancellor, China University of Petroleum - Beijing, China LECTURE: Future for, Future for Coal Zbigniew Kasztelewicz, AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow, 13:30-14:30 DISCUSSION PANEL The Energy Sector in the Times of Crisis In the coming years, the Central European countries may have to confront the energy crisis. This will be the consequence both of investment negligence and the decision, i.a. Germany s, to withdraw from nuclear energy. To avoid a negative scenario, huge investments are needed in the sector. Supporters of conventional energy generation methods say that recession is not a good time for the introduction of new energy technologies, as electricity derived from RES is expensive, and these costs are borne by businesses and individual recipients. On the other hand, their opponents argue that if one takes into account the pollution emitted by coal-fired power plants and expenses incurred for medical treatment, it turns out that energy from unconventional sources is not more expensive at all. Which energy sources should be developed in times of crisis? How should the Polish energy mix change, taking into account the EU Climate Package? Moderator: Robert Gwiazdowski, President, Adam Smith Research Centre, Speakers: Jaroslaw Dabrowski, CEO, Dabrowski Finance Sp. z o.o., Krzysztof Noga, President of the Board, DUON Marketing and Trading S.A., Jacek Zwierzchowski, Vice-Head of the Structuring Financing Department and Mezzanine, BRE Bank SA, Robert Jędrzejczyk, Legal Advisor, Partner, Law Firm Tokarczuk, Jędrzejczyk and Partners GLN,
20 20 Programme 13:30-14:30 DISCUSSION PANEL Fuel Sector Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow Despite the fact that the world s attention is currently focused on tackling the consecutive phases of the economic crisis, there is no doubt that in about fifteen years the demand for energy will increase, because the world s population is constantly growing. At the same time, due to the higher oil supply, refinery profits will no more be as certain as they used to be in the past. Experts predict that the sector will remain stable as the main source of energy will still be hydrocarbons and the resources will be sufficient. What is the best strategy for the fuel sector in changing energy market conditions? Should it minimise risks by embarking on a development strategy based on investing in new profitable fields? Will petrochemicals become more important that fuels? What will be the impact of new technologies on the fuel sector? Moderator: Andrzej Szczesniak, Analyst, NaftaGaz.pl, Speakers: Ole Gunnar Austvik, Professor - Head of Research, Lillehammer University, Norway Xiucheng Dong, Director of the China Research Center for the Oil and Gas Industry Development, China University of Petroleum - Beijing, China Patrice Dreiski, Senior Expert, Private Office of the Secretary General, Energy Charter Secretariat, France Francisco Ruiz Gonzalez, Lieutenant Commander of the Navy; Senior Analyst, National Institute of Strategic Studies, Spain Keith Smith, Senior Associate, Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), USA 14:30-15:15 LUNCH
21 Programme 21 15:15-17:00 DISCUSSION PANEL Green Energy and Its Impact on the Economic Effectiveness Green race with time in Europe has started. It s an obvious consequence of EU s decision that Member States should reduce the emission of greenhouse gases by 80 % till First step towards fulfilling these goals is the plan 3x20, currently being in progress. In result, due to substantial technological development in the last year, the energy produced from renewable sources will be competitive enough to face market rivalry with energy based on fossil fuels. In, an introduction of transparent legislation and reduction of economic obstacles is a prerequisite to create a friendly environment for Green Energy. The main purpose of the debate is to find the answer to the question what final shape the plans for the development of renewable energy in Central and Eastern Europe should have. Moderator: Grzegorz Napieralski, Member of Parliament, Presentation of the Report: Luis Fraga, President, World Stability Observatory, Spain Speakers: Miroslaw Bielinski, President of the Board, Grupa ENERGA, Kaveh Ertefai, Chief Executive Officer, Activ Solar, Austria Nicolas Loris, Energy Policy Analyst, The Heritage Foundation, USA Andreas Biehler, General Manager, BMW Vertriebs GmbH, Philippe Costerg, Deputy Director Solar PV, TOTAL, France Danuta Grodzicka-Kozak, President, Regional Fund for Environmental Protection & Water Management in Gdansk,
22 22 Programme 15:15-17:00 DISCUSSION PANEL Cooperation or Competition in Nuclear Energy Sector? The German government s decision to withdraw from nuclear power by 2022 will affect the energy security of the Central and Eastern Europe. The CEE countries have already announced projects for the construction or expansion of existing nuclear power plants. Thus, new markets are opening for the French, Russian, Japanese and American industries that have long been providing nuclear technology solutions worldwide. Will cooperation be possible in this part of Europe despite the global competition between these companies?

23 Programme 23 17:35-19:20 DISCUSSION PANEL Public Services or Business Activities? Energy Sector In The Cities of 21st Century Sustainable urban development in the 21st century cannot exist in isolation from energy issues. Energy is a business activity carried out to a great extent in the area of public services. Therefore, rapid growth of cities should be followed by adequate development of energy infrastructure and by increasing production capacities. On one hand, most energy companies are commercial firms established to generate income, on the other hand, the public sector is forced to cut spending because of the crisis. Therefore, in order to increase security and to streamline energy expenditures, it is important to build energy rings around cities, to create conditions allowing to design low-energy buildings, and to convince citizens of the importance of the rational use energy and energy-efficient solutions.
